Part of the series: Sound Scapes

Come with us on a journey through sound.

Upon arriving at my parents' house tonight, I was struck anew by the incredible sounds of wildlife where they live in the woods. I decided to record and share with the HPR audience.

Some impressive ambient sounds

Thanks Jon. A great idea for a show. I'd love to know more about what was making those sounds - cicadas, as you said, but what else I wonder?

I haven't personally encountered anything quite like those night sounds. Here in not very rural Scotland you'd hear owls or foxes but not a lot else in my experience!

Wow that is really loud, but fascinating. I recorded some wild life (bird song) while at a study centre in Birmingham in the UK last April its quite long at over 10 minutes but very relaxing maybe another show there.

This reminded me of the night sounds at Pine View Farm when I was growing up.

Mystery bugs

Thanks for the comments, everyone. Dave, I have no idea what else is out there making all of this noise. A biologist specializing in insects can probably make some sense of it, but to me it's just a bunch of wonderful noise.

More nostalgia

I agree with Frank; noises like this were a common occurrence while I was growing up. This episode brought back lots of warm memories.

Thanks a bunch, Jon!
